COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
New Planet Pale Ale (formerly Off Grid Pale Ale) is a wonderful interpretation of the classic pale ale style. It has a distinctly deep amber color and great character and body. Three varieties of hops provide a wonderful aroma and a citrus and spicy hop flavor. This smooth gluten-free ale is made from sorghum and brown rice extract, molasses, tapioca maltodextrin, caramel color, hops, and yeast.

Another un tasty gluten free beer. Not much of a surprise there, as it tastes a bit of cheap home made cheese cloth beer my dad made once.

bottled, thanks to the blackswan, amber colored pour with vanilla, wine and figs, thin plastic body hurts it

12 ounce bottle from Whole Foods Market Charlottesville. Pours a clear copper color with a fizzy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of grainy, caramel malts, nutty notes and metallic hops. The taste is bitter hops, caramel, honey, tea and nutty notes. Medium bodied. Decent.

Bottle. Amber color, initially a large head that fades to almost flat. Nose of hops and rye bread. It starts off syrupy, then goes to some hopping, then a very weird grain finish...maybe that's the brown rice. Not bad at first, but gets harder and harder to drink as the glass works its way down.

bottle - Pours mostly clear caramel colored with a small, lingering head and some lacing. It has a very mild aroma, sugary with a touch of caramel. The flavor has moderate hops bitterness, caramel, and sugar. Itís big weakness is the body. Quite lacking. It would have been worse without some good hops, but itís still not all that good.

marcus (6538) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 1, 2012
Pours copper with a modest off-white head and a light floral aroma. There is a smoky caramel malt flavor with a dry finish. This one actually has some flavor to it.

12 oz. bottle for review from Louis Glunz. It has a good, coppery pale ale color. The head is more bubbly and fizzy than most beers, which Iíll put up to its "grain" bill and vegan fining. I really cannot agree with anyone else that the smell is bad. It has some hops to it, which can make up for a lot of other faults. There is the slight sourness that I have found in other gluten-free beers, which becomes more pronounced as the glass warms up. Still there are hops putting up a front. The beerís website mentions on citrusy hops, so that may be contributing to the slightly cidery sourness. Since Iím supposed to be watching a different condition, blood sugar, itís interesting to see the standard ingredient label which shows this has no carbs from sugar (I know, the carbs from alcohol can be just as much a problem), But I do think I could manage with this if I had to (boy, is that damning with faint praise).
